Pit Fighter is a 2005 action film directed by Jesse V. Johnson and starring Dominique Vandenberg, Steven Bauer and Stephen Graham and Scott Adkins.[1][2]


Jack (Vandenberg) Severino is a quiet yet intense man who has no recollection of his past, he spends his time in violent no holds barred fights in a small South American village. The only friend he has is his manager Manolo, an Indian trying to escape poverty. Jack's violent past catches up with him when he sees a woman (Stana Katic) he has not seen in years bring back his memories.


The film was not well received by critics and has a 0% fresh rating (from 3 reviews) on Rotten Tomatoes[3] and David Nusair of Reel Film said "There've been a lot of bad straight-to-video action flicks over the years, but this is surely the worst".[4] DVD Talk reviewer Scott Weinberg said in his review, "Just because something's (very) cheaply made, amazingly generic, and more than a little stupid -- that doesn't mean it's boring, and if you're the sort of movie fan who'd grab a DVD called Pit Fighter from the shelf and flip it over to read the plot synopsis -- then Pit Fighter is probably something you'd enjoy."[2]
